I've been asked to do cookie with an edible image on it... I've never done it but I've got an epson nx300 printer, got my frosting sheet and I'm waiting for my edible ink...
Do you charge the same as you other cookies? (.75-1.00$ an inch?)
Good question. I just bought a printer as well and I'm waiting for my kopykake order. I was planning on charging more for the edible images. What does everyone else do?
I havent used any ei's yet, but I would figure out how much it costs...to print it, for the ink, the paper etc. then add that to the order. I would def. charge more than my reg. cookies.
I just ordered my EI printer too!
When I do sell them I just planned on breaking down the frosting sheets by individual price and then how many cookies I get out of it. Add on extra for the ink and then add that to the top of my already iced cookies which will be $2.50 each. I'm guessing the will be around $3.50 each, unless they are bigger or smaller than a 3"-5" cookie.
I charge $1.75 for my 2.5" EI cookies and $3.00 for my 3.5" and business card EI cookies. Individual packaging is included
It all depends on how big the cookie is and how many frosting circles come on a page.
Since there are only 6 3.25" frosting circles on a page, and a cookie to fit that would be 3.5-4 inches, i charge $3 each.
For business card size where there are 10 images per page and the cookies are smaller, i charge $2.75.
For 2.5 inch circles that are on 3-inch cookies, i charge $2.50.
Thank you very much!
I was just thinking about this today, I was going to add $5 per dozen to the cost of the cookies. I saw this on a few cookie sites. What do you think?
Just figure out how much the frosting sheets and the ink will cost you and then how much you want for your work. Decorating cookies is cheaper but more labor intensive, while edible images are more costly and less labor intensive.
